Garden in Bloom Diana Gibbs Stampin' Up!

I joined the swap on the cruise and this is the card that I did. It uses the cute set Garden in Bloom and I inked up some new In Colors and this one is Sweet Sugarplum. Don't you just love it?

It uses Crumb Cake for the base, then Soft Sky and Shimmery White for the card layers. Old Olive goes with everything so that is what I used for the leaves.  Crushed Curry for the center of the flower and the body of the bee, and stamped with the Archival Black so I could color it.  Oh and of course I had to add some Gorgeous Grunge on there too.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

So Blessed!

Norwegian Epic

We will be leaving on one of our many trips of a lifetime that Stampin' Up! has blessed us with in my 17 years of being a Demonstrator. This year we are going on a Mediterranean cruise, we fly to Barcelona and then hop on board.  I can not believe that I will be seeing the Statue of David, one of my bucket list items since art class in Highschool.

I want to thank from the the bottom of my heart, my family and friends, my customers, and my downline for helping us earn these amazing trips each year, we could not do it without you.

We will see you when we get back and I will post about all our excursions and fun then.

Have an awesome week and thanks for stopping in.  

Bon Voyage!

Running around doing last minute errands for our Mediterranean Cruise, picked up a new camera today so we both have one to use since we won't be using our phones while we are gone.

We were dog tired, but I think we are ready to start packing.

Watch for double eggs reward points coming up as well.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

P.S. Who's gonna win Survivor?  I am thinking Aubrey.

Paper Pumpkin bonus set Diana Gibbs Stampin' Up!

We got a bonus stamp set called All About Everything in our Paper Pumpkin this month and it is adorable. I had a new style class this last weekend. 3 cards for $10.00 or Free with a $25.00 (before tax and shipping) order and we made this fun card. I wanted the girls to use a Paper Pumpkin set so they see what they are missing.

I saw a cute card by Mindy Backes and this is my version, thanks Mindy!

Paper Pumpkin Diana Gibbs Stampin' Up! Mindy Backes tweak

I used Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Island Indigo for my inks, and the greeting is in Basic Black Archival. Of course I had to add Gorgeous Grunge and some pearls. Super easy and pretty eh?

This is crunch week trying to get everything done for our trip.  Jeff and I drove (ok he drove and I rode along...I don't drive that is out of my bubble) to Phoenix on errands on the weekend. As we were waiting to cross the street I was like oh my gosh I have to take this picture.

4th and Jeff

Do you see it? Hilarious! Not a bad pic of my hubby either...hubba!hubba!

We also went to see the new Captain America movie, it was pretty good. Jeff and Eric had gone Friday night but since I had class in the morning I stayed home and let them have some guy time.

Well I better get off here and get some work done.

Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.
